On Saturday (Jan. 25), the downtown museum will offer free admission to all its visitors while it hosts Carpe Librum Chicagos winter book sale, including children’s and young adult books. Carpe Librum Chicago will use the book sale’s profits to benefit the educational nonprofit Turning the Page

Families with younger kids should also stop by the Children’s Literature Gallery with hands-on activities from classic children’s books.
